Nov 22 @ 09:00 – 19:30
to Nov 23 | SCULPTURE EXHIBIT | Across Space by Gonzalo Ramírez | Marques de Pombal | FREE @ Instituto Cervantes de Lisboa | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Gonzalo Ramírez is an artist from Uruguay. He makes sculptures. His new show is entitled “Do outro lado do espaço” (“Across space,” roughly).

Spanish-language school Instituto Cervantes de Lisboa, hosts of Gonzalo’s new show, describe his stuff like this:
“His sculptures stand out for their studied proportions, their textures, and colors, and in each of them, one appreciates the aesthetics, harmony, and movement, showing a careful fabrication by letting the soul of the materials used give it a glimpse… an unmistakable personal touch.”

Go witness Gonzalo’s personal take on careful fabrication.
Or learn some Spanish.
Or both.

HOURS:
Tue-Thursday, 9h-19h30.
Fri, 9h-14h30.

Nov 22 @ 10:00 – 19:00
to Dec 15 | ART EXHIBIT | Are you a Tourist? | Belém | 6€ @ Padrão dos Descobrimentos | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Are you a tourist?
No, seriously.
Are rent and petty theft going up because of you?
When you walk around Lisbon and see the increasing “Tourists F.ck Off” graffiti and stickers, do you ask yourself, “Do they mean me?”
Or maybe you even utter that same sentiment from time to time in an attempt to, you know, blend in?
After all, tourism is a state of mind…

Anyway, Padrão dos Descobrimentos invites you to ask these and other tough questions in their new show… inside popular tourist destination Belém.
Here’s what they say:
“What is a tourist? Can we all be tourists? Is a tourist always a tourist? What was tourism like in the time of our grandparents? Can we be tourists in the cities we live in?
The exhibition invites us to look at tourists and their activities, but also to migrants and locals, paying special attention to our daily or occasional encounters, showing that we all can learn from one another. For that, we need only to see each other as inhabitants of the same world, although we look at it through different perspectives and with different expectations.”

Are you a tourist…?

Daily: 10h-19h.

ENTRY: 6€ (for tourists and locals).

Nov 22 @ 10:00 – 19:00
to Dec14 | PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBIT | Lisbon On Film | Chiado | FREE @ Livraria Ferin | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

There’s no doubt about it: Lisbon is a very photogenic city.
Which is why its ever-increasing selfie-taking population remains a mystery…

Lisbon Analogue Photography is self-described as “a group of photographers in love with analog photography who decided to create a collective in Lisbon.”

Here’s what they humbly say about their new exhibit at Livraria Ferin:
“We are very proud to invite you all to our next exhibition, ‘Lisbon on Film!’ This exhibition is a tribute to the city of Lisbon captured through analog cameras.”

The seven photographers on display are:
Diana Goulão Marques (Portugal).
Francesca Faulin (Italy).
Joaquim De Oliveira Gonçalves (Portugal).
Nuno Correia (Portugal).
Nuno Domingues (Portugal).
Solenne Brugiroux (Tahiti).
Wojtek Scibor (Poland).

HOURS: Mon-Fri, 10h-19h.

Nov 22 @ 10:00 – 17:00
to Nov 29 | HISTORICAL EXHIBIT | #ECOS: Exiles, counteract silences | Olaias | FREE @ ESCOLA ARTÍSTICA ANTÓNIO ARROIO | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Living in exile can be tough, as some of Atas’ own self-exiled staff know…
Throughout Portugal’s version of the Trump era — i.e. the Estado Novo dictatorship — countless locals decided to pack up and go rather than stand by and watch, or worse.

Here’s how the organizers of #ECOS – Exílios, contrariar silêncios (“#ECHOES – Exiles, counteract silences”) describe this historical and all-too-relevant exhibit:

“This was an important flow of people in the history of Portugal. Men and women fleeing repression, imprisonment, the Colonial War, and poverty have come a long way, including those in many European countries. They went into exile in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Sweden, Denmark, etc..

The exhibition addresses the memory and material traces of these paths, from the clandestine “border jump” to the objects that marked everyday life, and those that came in the return bag.

Millions of people continue to travel the path of exile in search of refuge, home, and shelter. The stories #Echoes account also bring us to the present and let us think about building belonging places in Europe today.”

Show up daily, 10h-17h, until November 29th.

Nov 22 @ 14:00 – 19:00
to Nov 29 | ART EXHIBIT | FACES Project by Elvira Carrasco | Santos | FREE @ carrasco.art | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Elvira Carrasco is a 29-year-old artist and art historian originally from Spain. Her work has been exhibited all over the world, from New York to Tel Aviv.

Elvira has a thing for faces. Particularly, her own. She likes to put body paint on it, and then photograph it, thereby creating unique and diverse self-portraits.

Carrasco.art — a semi-new local art gallery opened by Pedro Carrasco, on a street that shares both his and Elvira’s name (chance or design?) — hosts Elvira’s solo show “FACES,” and adds this:

“She creates her own ritual, like our distant ancestors used to do, like some tribes still do. She works alone. Far from everyone. Distant from humankind. She prepares herself and she meditates. She is afraid. But at this precise moment, the energy comes and floods her body. Then the work flows with no more hesitations or doubts…

Elvira discovered her own way to communicate with others – using her own face as a canvas is her purpose.”

Check out Elvira’s work face to face until November 29th.

Nov 22 @ 15:00 – 19:30
to Nov 26 | ACTIVIST PHOTO EXHIBIT | Through Our Eyes | Campo Mártires da Pátria | FREE @ Galeria Monumental | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

“No border should be more worthy of protection than a human life.”

That’s just one of the many mottos of HuBB – Humans Before Borders, a non-profit organization dedicated to the fight against the inhumane and illegal treatment of migrants and refugees.

This week, in honor of World Children’s Day, HuBB and Galeria Monumental present a photo exhibit by some youngsters who are probably not doing as well as you.

Here’s what they say about it:
“Since August 2019 there has been an enormous raise of migrants and refugees arrivals on Greek Islands (mainly Lesvos, Chios, and Samos).
Consequently, living conditions in the camps are getting worse every day, with increase in the tensions among the population.

The photography project “Through Our Eyes” shows the daily lives of asylum seekers living in the ‘hotspot’ camp on Samos Island, Greece, through their own eyes. Behind the camera, instead of reporters or journalists, we find teenage boys and girls who have been living in this camp for months.

The young photographers are students at the Mazi youth center, run by the NGO Still I Rise. Founded in June 2018 by Nicolò Govoni, Giulia Cicoli and Sarah Ruzek, Mazì provides informal education and psychosocial support for children aged 12 to 17 living in the camp.

The photos show us the daily reality and the emotional struggles of children trapped at the edge of Europe, at the mercy of geopolitical wranglings that take no account of their need to survive, to learn, to flourish, and grow.

During the week of the exhibition, Galeria Monumental will host talks, performances, and gatherings around this topic. We will be raising funds to support Still I Rise and their education program for children.”

FREE ENTRY (but, again, donations are welcome… for the kids).

to Nov 30 | ART EXHIBIT | Desvio by Cláudia Salgueiro | São Bento | FREE
Nov 22 @ 18:00 – 21:00
to Nov 30 | ART EXHIBIT | Desvio by Cláudia Salgueiro | São Bento | FREE @ Apaixonarte | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

“Apaixonar-te” is the Portuguese verb for falling in love, while “Arte” means… you guessed it — art.
And that’s how local art gallery APAIXONARTE (“falling in love with art,” roughly) got its name.

“Desvio” is the Portuguese word for “detour,” and also the name of the new solo show at APAIXONARTE by Porto-based artist Cláudia Salgueiro.
She describes it as follows:
“A set of drawings that aim to reflect on the act of walking, landscape, nature, body, and movement. Walking is the first and the most primitive way to travel. Like breathing, walking is defined as an unconscious act inherent to all of us.”

This November, why not take a walking detour and go breathe in some art?
Who knows, you might just fall in love…

The exhibition opens on Nov 8th, at 18h, and will be up until Nov 30th.

Gallery hours:
Mon-Fri – 12h-19h30.
Sat – 11h-16h (closed Sundays).

FREE ENTRY.

MULTIMEDIA PERFORMANCE | Filme-Concerto: Aurora | Graça | FREE @ Camones CineBar | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Nuno Costa likes the guitar, while Óscar Graça prefers piano. But they both like music, and also share a passion for cinema.

Since 2005, when Nuno and Óscar attended the Berklee College of Music, the pair have collaborated with various audiovisual and multimedia directors and producers worldwide.

Their latest project — Filme-Concerto (“Movie-Concert”) — is described by Nuno like this:
“This project aims not only to try to modernize or update, but rather to revive basic films in the history of cinema.”

The latest film the duo are reviving is 1927’s Aurora (Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans) by F. W. Murnau, with Nuno on guitar and Óscar on piano and keyboards (and both on laptops).

Come to Camones CineBar this Friday for an audio-visual hisotrcially-modern treat.

Here’s what they say:
“What is a tourist? Can we all be tourists? Is a tourist always a tourist? What was tourism like in the time of our grandparents? Can we be tourists in the cities we live in?
The exhibition invites us to look at tourists and their activities, but also to migrants and locals, paying special attention to our daily or occasional encounters, showing that we all can learn from one another. For that, we need only to see each other as inhabitants of the same world, although we look at it through different perspectives and with different expectations.”

Are you a tourist…?

Daily: 10h-19h.

ENTRY: 6€ (for tourists and locals).

Here’s what they humbly say about their new exhibit at Livraria Ferin:

Living in exile can be tough, as some of Atas’ own self-exiled staff know…
Throughout Portugal’s version of the Trump era — i.e. the Estado Novo dictatorship — countless locals decided to pack up and go rather than stand by and watch, or worse.

Here’s how the organizers of #ECOS – Exílios, contrariar silêncios (“#ECHOES – Exiles, counteract silences”) describe this historical and all-too-relevant exhibit:

“This was an important flow of people in the history of Portugal. Men and women fleeing repression, imprisonment, the Colonial War, and poverty have come a long way, including those in many European countries. They went into exile in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Sweden, Denmark, etc..

The exhibition addresses the memory and material traces of these paths, from the clandestine “border jump” to the objects that marked everyday life, and those that came in the return bag.

Millions of people continue to travel the path of exile in search of refuge, home, and shelter. The stories #Echoes account also bring us to the present and let us think about building belonging places in Europe today.”

Show up daily, 10h-17h, until November 29th.

to Nov 29 | ART EXHIBIT | FACES Project by Elvira Carrasco | Santos | FREE @ carrasco.art | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Elvira Carrasco is a 29-year-old artist and art historian originally from Spain. Her work has been exhibited all over the world, from New York to Tel Aviv.

Elvira has a thing for faces. Particularly, her own. She likes to put body paint on it, and then photograph it, thereby creating unique and diverse self-portraits.

Carrasco.art — a semi-new local art gallery opened by Pedro Carrasco, on a street that shares both his and Elvira’s name (chance or design?) — hosts Elvira’s solo show “FACES,” and adds this:

“She creates her own ritual, like our distant ancestors used to do, like some tribes still do. She works alone. Far from everyone. Distant from humankind. She prepares herself and she meditates. She is afraid. But at this precise moment, the energy comes and floods her body. Then the work flows with no more hesitations or doubts…

Elvira discovered her own way to communicate with others – using her own face as a canvas is her purpose.”

Check out Elvira’s work face to face until November 29th.

“Apaixonar-te” is the Portuguese verb for falling in love, while “Arte” means… you guessed it — art.
And that’s how local art gallery APAIXONARTE (“falling in love with art,” roughly) got its name.

“Desvio” is the Portuguese word for “detour,” and also the name of the new solo show at APAIXONARTE by Porto-based artist Cláudia Salgueiro.
She describes it as follows:
“A set of drawings that aim to reflect on the act of walking, landscape, nature, body, and movement. Walking is the first and the most primitive way to travel. Like breathing, walking is defined as an unconscious act inherent to all of us.”

This November, why not take a walking detour and go breathe in some art?
Who knows, you might just fall in love…

The exhibition opens on Nov 8th, at 18h, and will be up until Nov 30th.

Gallery hours:
Mon-Fri – 12h-19h30.
Sat – 11h-16h (closed Sundays).

“No border should be more worthy of protection than a human life.”

That’s just one of the many mottos of HuBB – Humans Before Borders, a non-profit organization dedicated to the fight against the inhumane and illegal treatment of migrants and refugees.

This week, in honor of World Children’s Day, HuBB and Galeria Monumental present a photo exhibit by some youngsters who are probably not doing as well as you.

Here’s what they say about it:
“Since August 2019 there has been an enormous raise of migrants and refugees arrivals on Greek Islands (mainly Lesvos, Chios, and Samos).
Consequently, living conditions in the camps are getting worse every day, with increase in the tensions among the population.

The photography project “Through Our Eyes” shows the daily lives of asylum seekers living in the ‘hotspot’ camp on Samos Island, Greece, through their own eyes. Behind the camera, instead of reporters or journalists, we find teenage boys and girls who have been living in this camp for months.

The young photographers are students at the Mazi youth center, run by the NGO Still I Rise. Founded in June 2018 by Nicolò Govoni, Giulia Cicoli and Sarah Ruzek, Mazì provides informal education and psychosocial support for children aged 12 to 17 living in the camp.

The photos show us the daily reality and the emotional struggles of children trapped at the edge of Europe, at the mercy of geopolitical wranglings that take no account of their need to survive, to learn, to flourish, and grow.

During the week of the exhibition, Galeria Monumental will host talks, performances, and gatherings around this topic. We will be raising funds to support Still I Rise and their education program for children.”

FREE ENTRY (but, again, donations are welcome… for the kids).

Mara Castilho is a multi-talented multimedia artist who spends her days between London, Lisbon, and Rio de Janeiro.

Here’s what some art critics have said about her work: “… Castilho’s art puts us on the path of complete destruction and suspends us in time – it offers pure pleasure without real death.” Lapiz Art Magazine (SPAIN).

“Mara Castilho’s Installation ‘Absence II’ has the power, simplicity, and beauty that bring artists such as Bill Viola to mind… ” New York Arts Magazine (USA).

And here’s what Occupart, the latest gallery to have its walls lined with Mara’s stuff, say: “In her solo show O Vazio da Minha Alma (The empty of my soul), Mara exposes painted and embroidered photographs. Emptiness and loss haunt these works. Between black, white, and gold, Castilho exhibits images that navigate between beauty and the ugly, pain and love, emptiness and ruin, life and death.”

Refreshingly uplifting, no?
Come see how Mara fills the void.
